The people on Sunday stopped the Badrinath Rishikesh highway region in front of the base hospital where Ankita’s remains are housed as rage over the Ankita Bhandari death case spilled onto the streets. In fact, many individuals formed groups and went on Cycle Rally for justice of Ankita Bhandari. The administration team made an effort to unclog the traffic bottleneck that the barricades had produced.
The public demanded the death’s post-mortem report and the execution of the guilty. On Sunday, the neighbourhood market was closed as a gesture of support before Ankita Bhandari’s funeral. Srinagar’s traders kept all of their establishments shut.
Before Ankita’s funeral in Garhwal, Srinagar, the development occurred. The deceased’s family had previously objected to the execution of the last rites because they wanted the post-mortem report turned over. On the other hand, the government made an effort to persuade Ankita’s family. “We won’t conduct her last rites until her post-mortem report is given. We saw in her provisional report that she was beaten up and thrown in a river. But we’re awaiting the final report,” stated Ajay Singh Bhandari, brother of Ankita Bhandari.
Anger-filled residents set fire to the Vanatara resort in Rishikesh earlier on Saturday. The resort is owned by Pulkit Arya, a son of expelled BJP leader Vinod Arya. He is a suspect in the murder of Ankita Bhandari. Locals crowded the Pauri bus terminal as well as the streets of other districts of Uttarakhand in protest over the horrifying murder. Additionally, protesters gheraoed the Pauri District Magistrate’s office. Ankita Bhandari, 19, was last seen a few days ago and her body was found in Rishikesh’s Chilla canal on Saturday. Pushkar Singh Dhami, the chief minister of Uttarakhand, gave the order to constitute a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to look into the matter.
